Broadband plan set in Baguio & Benguet

The government’s National Broadband Plan (NBP) has been rolled out in Baguio and Benguet with the Benguet Electric Cooperative joining the loop.

URBAN JUNGLE -- The country’s Summer Capital with a land area of 57.49 square kilometers could no longer accommodate more concrete structures for commercial purposes and for its growing population that has reached more than 400,000. The proposed BLISTT Development Authority pending before the Congress and the Senate aims to spread out socio-economic opportunities to the outlying towns of Benguet to decongest Baguio. -- Harley Palangchao

City Mayor Mauricio Domogan has refused to sign the city council resolution allowing the operation of a carnival at the Children’s Playground at Burnham Park.

Concerned agencies are giving particular attention to Abra in relation to the midterm elections in May.

DA to evaluate surplus of vegetable supply
The Department of Agriculture-Cordillera is evaluating recent reports of an oversupply of Benguet vegetables leading to low market prices, forcing some farmers to throw away their produce.


Kennon Road will be open for light vehicles only in time for the celebration of the Panagbenga Festival and alumni homecoming of the Philippine Military Academy in February. But the definite date of Kennon’s re-opening is yet to be announced.

-- Gloria Diane Rojas
ROAD SAFETY -- La Trinidad is now bent on strictly implementing its traffic rules and regulations through the proposed Traffic Safety Ordinance, which is on first reading at the Sangguniang Bayan.
-- Ofelia Empian
ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN -- With talks on the establishment of a development authority for Baguio, La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba and Tublay, one of targets is to strengthen mechanisms in protecting the environment, which is a common concern among the said local government units. One advantage of having a governing body is a shared focus in preserving and even rejuvenating communal assets of the BLISTT such as the once pristine Balili River. -- Ofelia Empian
GIVE LIFE -- The Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital in Abatan, Bauko, Mountain Province lauds the 13 blood donation support groups from the provinces of Mountain Province, Ilocos Sur, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, and Abra that produced 615 blood units in 2018, in support of the Department of Health’s campaign of providing safe and sufficient blood supply, all coming from voluntary blood donors by 2020. -- Coney Nibaten
